News this week has confirmed that first-time buyers are better off investing in a home rather than rental accommodation, after the average cost of a mortgage re-payment is on average £120 cheaper than rent re-payments, in some parts of the UK.

With this in mind, Jelson’s Hinckley development Bramblings, off Kinross Way, is now offering for sale a perfect choice of first-time buyer properties which are now ready for immediate occupation. The selection includes the development’s delightful three-bedroom semi-detached Plover home which is priced at £179,950.

What’s more, with the Government-backed Help to Buy† scheme also available, a spring-time move into a brand-new home could make the perfect year for first-time buyers in Hinckley. Since opening its doors for the first time in 2014, sales have gone from strength to strength, with choice, location and sensitive pricing all being positive factors for this particular development’s success.

Sales manager, Jackie Woodward, comments: “We have witnessed ongoing demand for new homes here from a variety of purchasers. Now, however, with news that first-time buyers are better off investing in bricks and mortar, we’re looking forward to welcoming even more people who can call Bramblings home.”

The Plover Inside, the Plover property boasts a good-sized lounge, a fully-fitted kitchen, separate cloakroom and generous hallway. Upstairs there are three bedrooms, with the master benefiting from an en-suite bathroom; there is also a handy family bathroom. The Plover also has a double-length driveway to the side of the property and spacious rear gardens for those sunny summertime evenings.

Jackie adds: “For those considering rental properties, we would really encourage them to visit Bramblings instead and talk through the cost and choice of setting up home with us. The Plover is ideal for single buyers and couples and would make an ideal first move, especially with Help to Buy available.” All homes at Bramblings are available with Help to Buy, making the properties even more appealing.

Jackie adds: “Since its launch, Help to Buy has been assisting Jelson’s first-time buyers and those looking to move further up the property ladder with greater financial ease. “It offers greater flexibility for those who have previously been priced out of the market but are still keen to make a move, and requires just a five-per-cent deposit. The government then provides a 20-per-cent equity loan, which is interest free for the first five years.”
